I am passionate about providing trauma-informed and LGBTQIA+ affirming care in Spanish and English, and I practice from the ethos of Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size. I hold a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles, and a Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary International Studies from the University of Arizona.
My experience includes providing Eating Disorder Treatment within PHP and IOP settings, utilizing the models of Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size.
